So Benicio Del Toro won't be playing the villain in Star Trek 2, whether he is indeed Khan or not. Nobody will say for sure right now.
Star Trek 2 casting news is heating up as the film gets closer to its start date, and this time around it's the good news/bad news routine.
It's hard to restrain Trekkie enthusiasm with the production of JJ Abram's ST2 poised to kick off on January 15, 2012 for a May 17, 2013 release date.
Benicio Del Toro may have been tapped to be the next Star Trek villain, but what character will Del Toro play if he accepts the role?
Star Trek fans will be happy to learn that things are moving right along in the JJ Abrams universe.
